Document Summary

Documentary hypothesis that the 1st testament was completed using 4 different documents . J (yahwist) orientation towards judah & god"s anthropomotphic & referred to as yahweh. E (elohist) northern israeli orientation & god is referred to as elohim. D (deuteronomy) hardships are consequences due to the failure of pple to hold up agreement with god. P very detailed & dated after the babylonian exile, so last bit to be included. Butthere are scholars who disagree with this hypothesis. P is not a separate document but a filler. Deuteronomy is actually the oldest of the documents. Inconsistencies show existence of an oral tradition rather than multiple written sources. Tanakh as a whole was produced by generations of israel"s scribes = copied, edited, & revised the texts. Creates human life last after having created animals, plants, etc. Creates man and woman at the same time. No restrictions as to what they could have/eat.
